Senior Vice President of Business Development

Gig Economy Group

Yak is the SVP of Business Development of Gig Economy Group and former Head of the Client Strategy at AOL/Verizon.  He is a digital marketing executive, with extensive experience in content storytelling, advertising technology, and emerging media. He is known for being a creative thinker, developing consumer marketing experiences for many of the world’s largest brands.  

His philosophy is simple: Leverage data and technology to create emotional experiences that connect with audiences and drive ROI. 

Yak lives in San Francisco with my wife and twin children (who teach him something every day).  To escape, he creates upcycle furniture, remodel rooms of his home, and is trying to teach himself the guitar (all advice is welcome).
